calibrate your message, focus on long-term spending instead of long-term debt. focusing on the debt ceiling makes the message more difficult. when i asked walden about the debt ceiling yesterday, he was clearly noncommittal, hinting on where the republican leadership maybe is on this. if there's not a majority in the house republican to raise the debt limit, but there is a majority in the house of representatives to raise a clean debt limit, would this leadership be willing to do that? >> you know, let's look at how do we avoid default on america and american's debt. how do we avoid these issues that are going to bankrupt the country long-term? >> boehner may come under pressure, though, from some conservative groups, but in the latest sign he may have some wiggle room, in a political op-ed this morning, the leaders of the club for growth, heritage action, and the family research counsel called for, quote, insisting that washington not raise the debt ceiling unless our nation gets on a path to a balanced budget within ten years that stays balanced. that is far from a don't raise the debt ce

the debt ceiling what leverage do republicans have? and the last chance to derail the term. i think i know what happens, the same thing that has happened always when we have had so many break outs they are left behind by the wall of worry. ask yourself, do you think that this many analysts could be right? do you think that these companies are going to prove to be brilliant exit prices? no. i bet that this is one of those moments where the world economies are going to be better. i say that because it is the same behavior i've seen over and over and over again. down days are days to buy, not sell. in order to get into this bull market, here is the bottom line, i think this market is simply taking a snooze after a big bull run, but wakes itself up perhaps with my alarm clock and if history serves me right, when stocks awaken they go higher not lower and it is turned out that their evaluations ended up being catalysts galore. bob in florida, bob. >> it is great to talk to you. south florida by way of teaneck, new jersey. i'm calling about krispy kreme donuts. i owned this stock years ago. i so

to entertain serious reform. talking about taking the debt ceiling off the table for the next four years. it's not big enough for tax reform? what need to see? what you need from your colleagues on the democratic side to engage in this kind of conversation? >> first of all, we have to take the debt ceiling off the table for a considerable period of time. secondly, regarding entitlement reform, let's take medicare as an example. there have been few changes in terms of medicare and its future. number one is that the rate of health care growth has been diminished. and the rate of medicare costs increase has also been diminished. at the first consequence and events of the last three years. suddenly we have health care reform, which i think has accelerated costs increase. what i think we need to do in terms of medicare is for both parties and the white house to have a serious discussion about how to get hold of medicare and medicaid costs. we really need to do that. but social security we have to have the same kind of discussion so i urge the chairman of finance, the ranking member in the senate,

strategy wonderful the debt ceiling is to split fracture and therefore neuter republicans in the house because that is all that stands between him and total dominance of washington in his second term. he wants a return to 2009-2010 when he had control of both houses he had a super majority in the senate. huge majority in the house. and revolutionized healthcare and passed the biggest spending bill the stimulus in galactic history. that's what he wants. the only way to do it is to do what he is doing and it already worked with the fiscal cliff fractured the republicans. who was in charge of the last vote? nancy pelosi, the democrats. she got 9 out of 10 to go with her. a few republicans. she controlled the agenda. that's his strategy. >> bill: it's working. and i don't know whether it's going to work down the road but he has two huge things going for him. the media behind him, all right. so think are going to support what he does generally speaking on the networks news level in the major urban newspapers and wire services like the associated press. he has got all of that favorable push.
